A few people still haven't signed up yet, which is no biggie but, you know:

"Prognosticators of the World, Unite!

Tomorrow..."

Anyway, the scoring is fixed now. Pretty standard fare, but I want to point out that WR's are VERY important in this league. 10 receptions yards = a point, and you get a half point per reception. There are also more WR's starting than RB's (3 to 2) plus a flex player, so bear that in mind when pre-ranking and drafting.

Here's a breakdown:
QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R, K, DEF, D, DB, DL, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN Stat Categories: Passing Yards (25 yards per point)

Rushing Yards (10 yards per point)
Rushing Touchdowns (6)
Receptions (0.5)

Does that .5 point for receptions go for RB's as well?

Yup. I think the biggest thing to bear in mind is the 10 receiving yards = a point. That's pretty generous...usually it's 25.

I assume its the same in the AFC league? Not a big issue, just curious.


Looks like pass-catching runningbacks will be a hot commodity in this league. Too bad Willie doesn't know how to catch.

I would like to know if the waiver time set at 7 days is correct?

Okay dumb question here, but I have never played with defensive guys before. So I can see that you need a Def, DB, DL and I know what these are. So what does "D" indicate? Is that anybody you want on the defensive side of the ball?

I think "D" is kind of like a flex position on defense, meaning you can use any defensive player on that spot.

I'm not too sure about this though. let's wait for an official answer from rev

All these settings are the settings of the AFC. I just "Plugged them in".

D is a flex player as far as I know, meaning it can be a DL, LB or DB.

Good stuff, Rev.

I made up these points last year based on another league I really enjoyed. I feel like these settings really open up other positions you can rely on. Generally, Fantasy Football is ruled by running backs. In this league, though, good running backs or good receivers or even a really good squad of individual defensive players, can be your breadwinners.

I know we have some newer players here so I'll just point out a few things.

All the veteran players know to study the points BEFORE the draft. I know it sounds simple, but seriously, people don't always do it. I participated in a league that had RIDICULOUS point settings for kick returners. The third best player in points behind Tomlinson and Brady was Joshua Cribbs. So, be sure to know what kind of guys you want before the draft. You can snag some good players in the late rounds that would normally be passed over.

You're right. Pass catching RBs are very valuable in this league. With that said, so are high reception receivers. A player having a mediocre performance in yards can still have a respectable outing if they have a few receptions.

Rev is right. The yardage was set like this to kind of level out the gap between RBs and WRs that you normally see. I've had reliable receivers carry my offense some weeks. Obviously, pass catching RBs become even more valuable because they earn receptions and any yardage they pick up counts as much as a run up the middle. Rushing yards are also 10:1.

As a few people have pointed out, "D" is a flex position. Remember to look at the point settings for individual defensive players. The way Yahoo works is that there a DL and DB. DL is anyone in the front seven (DTs, DEs, ILB, OLB, MLB, etc.). DB are your secondary, obviously. So you have 2 DLs, 2 DBs, and any combination of the 2 for the D. You can have 4 DL and 2 DB (my favorite), or 3 of each, and so on.

On defense, there are a lot of points to be cleaned up, if you pick the right personnel. Remember, just because they are a great player (how many tackles does Casey Hampton actually get?) does not mean they are a great fantasy player. Also, Solo tackles are worth a point. That's as much as ten yards for an RB. Like receivers, I've had 2 or 3 defenders put a game away for me. Perhaps even consider one that does kickoff duties, as well.

Some of this may seem obvious, but its good to actually HAVE a plan.
